Skin autograft was not possible due to generalized skin involvement, leading to unavailability of a donor site. A maternal skin allograft was performed for both eyelids of each eye. Prior human leukocyte antigen typing was not done, and postoperative immunosuppressive agents were not given. At 10 months' follow-up, the graft was well accepted, and the ectropion was corrected. © 2010 by The American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Inc., All rights reserved.
